MME blog challenge #14- and HM flowers tutorial

My Mind's Eye has another blog challenge for this month. It's a sketch by Anam Stubbington. Here are the rules: Use ANY My Mind’s Eye products (current or past) as long as your project has at least 80% My Mind’s Eye products. I must admit, I have a very few papers of MME and most of them are all from past collections. But since the challenge does not limit us to use the current collections, so I decided to join again in their challenge.
Here's the sketch.

But first all, despite the limited MME products on my stash, I'm very happy to share with you what I've came up with my layout using those few old MME pps and a negative of Bohemia embossed chipboards which I also used in my layout. I made my own flower embellishments using the design of MME Magnolia pps. Please scroll down to see the pictures below that will show on how did I turned a flat flower design into a dimensional one.

So Happy Together

I used here: MME pps ( Out and About, Magnolia) Corrugated board, Negative of Bohemia Embossed Chipboard, trimming, rub-on, sticker, Acrylic paints and Tattered Angels glimmer mist.

I cut the flower design of MME pp.

I cut out the circle at the center of the flower.

I divided the scalloped edge petals into two and put some pleats in each petal to give contour on the petals andglued both ends.

I cut the blue dotted edge of the circle and rolled it to make center of the flower.

I glued the first layer of petals into the circle paper and layer it with another set of petals. And here it is, my own flower embellishment.

I added leaf at the bottom.

With this one, I punched six flower daisies to form the center of the flower.
